Governor Tim Walz gave his second State of the State address on Sunday night. He addressed the state from the Governor's Residence where he was in quarantine after being exposed to COVID-19.
"This will be like a winter we've never seen before," said Governor Walz. "There's no stopping the storm of COVID-19 from hitting the state of Minnesota, but we are preparing."
The Governor's address focused on Minnesota's response to the coronavirus pandemic. He also introduced the slogan #OneMinnesota.

Governor Walz urged people to stay home during this time.
"Staying home is the only vaccine we have right now. You are slowing the spread of this disease. You are protecting your neighbors. You are giving hospitals time to prepare to care for the many who will fall ill. You are making a difference. You are certainly saving lives."
Walz ended the address by saying Minnesotans can tackle even the toughest of challenges and that we would come out better on the other side.
"Minnesota, the state of our state is strong. The state of our state is resilient. The state of our state is united. Thank you, stay home and stay healthy, Minnesota."
